Rocco, former guest and present volunteer
"I spent three weeks in The Laurels of Canton for physical therapy recovering from a long illness. While a patient in The Laurels, the care I was given was professional, competent, and caring. I felt the staff took a personal interest in my recovery. The facility is comfortable, clean, and the food is good too. I met a lot of people there that became friends. I decided to volunteer at The Laurels after my recovery because I want to be active. I can say it is a very rewarding return. The staff is wonderful and I work with the Activities Department where I meet a lot of patients. In closing, I can only say they have all done more for me than I ever did for them."
Joyce, daughter of former guest
"Pam, on of your STNA's, had an excellent greeting, great bedside manner, job loyalty and a nice smile which helped to make the transition from the hospital to the Laurels a comfortable one for my mother!"
"Everybody really took good care of me, my stay here was great. The therapy was wonderful. I think that most of the staff actually went above and beyond for me."
